Very good service again. Great reminder about the ESTAs!
Very good and helpful
Lucas, our travel manager was an absolute star - so helpful and knowledgeable.
Des Wing came up with a great deal for my holiday. I liked the regular emails to check in and also the personal call prior to the trip to make sure everything was OK. Flights were perfect, United were great, the app and regular notifications were spot on, everything went smoothly and the overall service was fantastic.
Flight good value. Hotel poor
A well organised trip that all went smoothly
OUTSTANDING is the only way I can explain DialAFlight. Thanks again Chloe
Annabelle and Sally are brilliant
Excellent service from Bradley. Quick responses to my queries and got us a very good price on our holiday. Keeping us informed and sending through documentation in plenty of time too. Will definitely use again.
Extremely helpful and professional. Would definitely use again and recommend to others.
Excellent service from the planning of our trip to the end. Would highly recommend and definitely use again.
From start to finish all was great - no problems at all. Tara was fantastic looking after us before we travelled
Thank you very much Dylan Harris
Who haven’t I told about your service? To me, being able to speak with someone at speed is invaluable and the price you got our three return flights to Las Vegas was literally half what I managed to find. The U2 concert at the Sphere was mind blowing but I can’t thank you for that I’m afraid. But thank you for everything else
As always excellent service from Neil and his team
Everything was perfect! Thanks very much
All very efficient and the trip went exactly to plan
Cannot praise you enough - excellent especially from Damian

Excellent customer service from Keira. Very happy and will definitely use again and recommend to others
Excellent work - everything was perfect
All was good and worked out well
Raj and team, perfect again!
We had an amazing trip thanks to Dylan and the DialAFlight team. Our tailormade holiday went very smoothly, not one glitch, can't recommend them enough.
Hassle free process throughout and professionally handled by the team
Have always spoken to Spencer or his team and they have been excellent
Been dealing with Jerry for many years and will continue to do so
The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas is – like many hotels in the city – labyrinthine. It really is simply gigantic, with 3,026 rooms and suites and a 100,000-square-foot casino. There are myriad elevators and seemingly never-ending corridors and getting lost is not difficult.
A HOME AWAY FROM HOME
However, I discovered that it’s still remarkably homely. Our room, a ‘terrace studio’, was spacious and comfortable, with two plush queen-size beds
The hustle and bustle of Sin City was quickly forgotten and I felt quite reluctant to leave the room. The luxurious bathroom and its deep bathtub also had a magnetic effect.
Along with the terrace it’s here that I spent most of my time. It boasts a panoramic view of the Strip and overlooks the famous Bellagio fountains. Utterly mesmerising.
The hotel has plenty of other features that ensnared me – the 14 dining spots, for example.
These include award-winning Jaleo, the first Vegas location of David Chang's Momofuku restaurants, Masterchef judge Christina Tosi's milk bar and foodie fave Eggslut, which serves up wholesome egg sandwiches despite the rather risqué name.
We tried out two other restaurants in the city during our stay. Beauty & Essex is one of Manhattan's trendiest – and like the original, chef Chris Santos's first foray outside New York is entered through a pawn shop, leading to a gilded space with a 1920s Gatsby vibe.
The following evening, we headed to Estiatorio Milos. The Greek restaurant is known for serving the freshest seafood – and every morsel we tried was more-ish, yet seasoned simply with just olive oil, salt and pepper.
The restaurant's signature dish, the Milos Special, consists of delicious paper-thin zucchini and aubergine, fried and seasoned to crispy perfection. It's presented in a tower that is disassembled to reveal a serving of tzatziki.
WHERE TO DRINK
For drinks, the Chandelier is an Instagram-worthy bar spanning three stories and shrouded by a shimmering, beaded curtain of light.
We also called in at Rose.Rabbit. Lie, a modern supper club where we skipped the food and instead enjoyed cocktails and live entertainment.
Tucked away inside is The Study, which pays homage to the classic speakeasy and gives cocktail fanatics a more relaxing environment in which to unwind.
Then it was time to visit the hotel's exclusive nightclub - Marquee.
Entry is complimentary for hotel guests but it’s not for the faint of heart. You'll find some reprieve from the ear-splitting music and flashing lights outside by the pool.
The following day, we went back to Marquee to experience the Day Club - a raucous pool party that instantly reminded me of Spring Break shenanigans you'd see in a movie. If that's not your scene, don’t worry - it's not the only pool on offer.
BEYOND THE CASINO
The Boulevard Pool is the place to go to sunbathe in a social space while the Chelsea Pool offers more secluded havens.
And after a night and day at Marquee, I enjoyed a much-needed massage at the Sahra Spa. The signature treatment combines Thai, Swedish and Shiatsu techniques – and left me feeling invigorated.
Seeing the Strip from the air is definitely something to consider. We splashed out on Maverick Helicopters' most popular tour – the Wind Dancer. The flight took us on a thrilling ride over the city to one of the greatest natural wonders of the world – the Grand Canyon in Arizona.
I sat up front next to the friendly pilot, who pointed out incredible landmarks including Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam before we landed in the canyon. Once there we were treated to champagne and snacks.
On the journey back, we spotted incredible red rock formations and enjoyed an exhilarating flight over downtown Vegas and the Strip. Sadly, our thoroughly enjoyable weekend came to an end all too soon. We’d found so many ways to entertain ourselves at the Cosmo that that we didn’t even set foot in the Casino – so left with pockets not so light as they otherwise might have been!
